Dental Materials, Splinting

Definition : Dental materials designed to be placed on the teeth to provide stabilization and immobilization (i.e., splinting). This helps to protect teeth from grinding or moving out of place. These dental materials usually consist of stainless steel, light-cure or self-cure composites, or modeling compound that are bonded to teeth in clinical applications. This helps keep in position teeth that may have been replanted or have fractured roots. Dental splinting materials should have physical properties that allow the dentist to curve and manipulate them into the desired shape; they should not have memory as regards to its form. Splinting materials are used in dentists' offices where tooth stabilization is required.
